Conclusion:
@leastonh I'm not really ready to go again to an AD to choose one and buy it.
BUT, honestly, if Omega contacts me again (they did once already, but I let it go)
and says that they have a Seamaster 300 Tokyo available for me to purchase for $5600, then I'm NOT going to pass it up again. I'm just going to get it (at full price).

I tried on the exact same watch in white and black, and liked how the white dial looked and how it fit. So, although I would prefer to see it in real life and try it on at an AD, I feel somewhat confident just ordering the Tokyo from the Omega website.
---
And if they don't contact me, and I am finally ready to go to an AD to buy something, then it will very likely be the yellow gold Seamaster 300 BLUE...
with the "regular" bracelet.

This is a win/win situation, since I win either way :).
The $3600 extra for the bracelet is way too much for me. I'd constantly be thinking I could almost have bought another decent watch for that extra money. The bracelet is important, but considering the standard Omega bracelet is incredibly comfortable anyway, it's a no brainer for me. That's just my logic though hehe :D

If the Tokyo was my first choice and I was in the market for an Omega if the price was right, I doubt I'd hesitate. That's especially true now I've had this 300m for a short while. I bought mine without visiting an AD and had it delivered to my home, partly due to Covid and partly because I knew I didn't need to try one on in person. I'd seen plenty in the AD windows in the past and that had sold me on it. It's been everything I could have hoped for and more. It's no wonder people rave so much about these watches.

Please post pics for us to drool over when you do buy one.

You guys, I am so so sorry, I posted that in the wrong forum, obviously. My only other watch is a Brosnan Seamaster which I love so much, and I clicked this group on accident. I will be in the corner with my dunce hat on if anyone needs me...

Hey,

That looks great, where is the mesh from ?

Thinking of getting one for next summer.
Thank you! I think the Milanese style is a great bracelet option for this watch. The NTTD watch inspired this look for me and others who had useful posts I followed for a while. A guy whose handles are Spiked Lee and Chicago Watch Curator has excellent posts on various forums on choosing different bracelets for this watch.

This one is a cheap one by Eache from Amazon. It is surprisingly well constructed and feels quite secure overall. Some weaker points: the clasp mechanism pushers and overall security feel less robust than I want and the straight end tubes where the quick release spring bars go are a bit larger than they could be, leaving some extra room around the spring bars which creates some play. I figured I would try this to see how I liked these and to judge the thickness (3mm) and then get one that a watch like this actually deserves.

Now that I know I love the look and thickness, my next step (which may be a better first step for you if you don’t want/need to do the same Eache “experiment” I did) is to get a Staib or something comparable. Everything I have read suggests the build quality is excellent and the one with the diver clasp looks like a much better and more secure clasp option.

Currently weighing polished vs. “satin” finish and looking for sources. Will update again when I choose one.

Cheers.
